Sisters' work during the 1918 Spanish flu seen as model for crisis today

Archivists from among the membership of the Archivists of Women Religious Congregations (ACWR) and CRRA responded to a list-serv post I requested, asking for histories and photographs depicting Communities' responses to the 1918 pandemic. I appreciate all their help. I’m sorry we couldn’t get all of the information sent into the story.

The Catholic News Service published Sisters' work during the 1918 Spanish flu seen as model for crisis today on March 30, 2020, as the Coronavirus pandemic ravages the globe. In sending out the link to ACWR members, Veronica Buchanan, Executive Secretary, ACWR commented: "we could all certainly use an example of our collections resonating with readers throughout the nation, especially when we feel more disconnected than ever."  

Stay well and many thanks.
